I bought these really great chocolate dessert cups and now find myself lost about what to fill them with. I was thinking some sort of mousse... I don't know. Any ideas? Thanks..

I don't know how big the cups are but white chocolate mousse topped with a fresh raspberry would be a killer.
This is really good as long as you use a good brand of white chocolate:
9 oz imported white chocolate, chopped
3large egg yolks
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/4 cups chilled heavy cream

Melt the white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat. In a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, whisk together the yolks & sugar until well combined. Remove the bowl from the saucepan & beat in 1/4 cup of the cream. Slowly stir in the melted chocolate until well combined. Whip the remaining 1 cup of cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold together the whipped cream & white chocolate mixture. Spoon into wine goblets & refrigerate until ready to serve.~~A Matter of Taste

Ginger I made this last night for dinner. Asolutely fabulous!!!! Everyone raved about them. They looked absolutely beautiful in the chocolate cups. I didn't have raspberries but, did a garnish of fresh mint and the tinest of orange zest. Yummy...Thank you so much.

Glad you liked it. Once in a GREAT while we get the tiny chocolate cups but not dessert size. I've always been tempted to make them by coating small inflated balloons but never have done it.

One Easter I made my own chocolate dessert cups and filled it with strawberry mousse. I was really easy , delicious and made a beautiful presentation. I don't have the recipe here with me right now, but I 'd be happy to find it if you are interested. Just let me know! Gina

Gina, I'm interested..
I noticed yesterday at Walmart that Wilton has silicone heart shaped cupcake holders..they would be perfect for chocolate cups.

1 instant vanilla pudding mix (4 c. serving size)
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. amaretto (or 1 tsp. almond extract)
Mix all ingredients well with electric mixer.Pipe into shells.
